World AIDS Day

Support World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day– the annual day dedicated to raising awareness of HIV worldwide. People often think of HIV/AIDS as only affecting people in the developing world, but we mustn’t forget that there are now more than 85,000 people with HIV in the UK – with 7,300 newly diagnosed cases last year.

I’ve supported a motion in parliament – Early Day Motion 47 – which recognises the importance of World AIDS Day. But clearly we need to continue our efforts to tackle the problem both at home and abroad and appropriate funding needs to be found for organisations like the National AIDS Trust (NAT) who work in this field.
